Before the arrival of the Loyalists and British military settlers, the present-day Province of Ontario was an extension of the Province of Quebec. Following the Constitutional Act of 1791, the colony of Quebec was divided to create Upper Canada (today Ontario) and Lower Canada (today Quebec). Many early settlers, both military and civilian, submitted petitions to the Governor to obtain Crown land. Sons and daughters of Loyalists were also entitled to free lands.

A trial set of 1,000 scanned Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF), First World War personnel files, has been used to create a Linked Open Data (LOD) set in Resources Description Format (RDF). The medical case sheet information from up to 3,000 pages from these personnel files was extracted using both human transcription and computer‐driven quality control. The transcribed data generated has value for researchers in handwriting recognition, and archival and medical institutions.
